Give (feat. Darek Sojka)

    A song about parenting; about giving, loving, sharing – it’s all about the same thing. Written for our wonderful daughter.

    Featuring Darek Sojka, who not only mixed, mastered and produced the song, but also kindly donated a part of his Americana soul implanted via the stylish resonator guitar.

    Lyrics:

    Though we look in different directions
    we are always in each other’s sight
    gathered round the fire
    wrestling through the night
    with our shadows in a ring
    that crowns our crossroads crucified
    as the fallen withered boughs
    bloom with flames, one last time alive

    as they’re
    getting bright and brittle
    round like river pebbles
    more and more alike
    clinging tight together
    making bed of embers
    for the new light to shine
    turning grey, becoming one
    with the fertile ground

    and I know that
    to give I have to want
    to give I need to have
    to share that gift I got
    to keep though never asked
    for it
    to live I need to feel
    to live I need to love
    that light that always will
    go on if shared enough.

    Still I wonder
    how to clear the way
    in your way not to stand
    How to hold you by the hand
    not making your hands tied
    How to help with every step you take
    not slowing you down
    How to look away
    when there in the mirror
    I can see you in my eyes.

    Before I turn to marble
    grow silent as you grow up
    into your wildest dreams
    I want you to know yourself
    so when you find that love for which
    all world you could forget
    don’t be afraid to give it all
    there’s so much more you’ll get

    just enough
    but to give you have to want
    to give you need to have
    to share that gift you got
    to keep though never asked
    for it
    to live you need to feel
    to live we need to love
    that light that always will
    go on if shared enough.

    Life is not unfair or fair
    neither wants nor doesn’t want
    It neither cares nor doesn’t care
    cause things like life just don’t
    It’s us who can and should be fair
    no matter what we believe in
    it just makes sense to care
    for everything we share
    give back as we were given

    but
    to give we have to want
    to give we need to have
    to share the gift we got to keep
    though never asked
    for it
    to live we need to feel
    to live we need to love
    that light that always will
    go on if shared enough.

    that light that never will
    be gone if shared enough.
